A man who rode an e-scooter without insurance has been handed six penalty points.

Lee Hart, 42, of Sutton Road, Southend, was stopped while using the e-scooter in Stratford High Street on June 14.

Police found he did not have insurance to cover his use of the vehicle.

Hart admitted the offence and Willesden Magistrates’ Court dealt with the case via the single justice procedure.

This means defendants do not need to attend court.

Magistrates handed Hart six penalty points and fined him £266.

He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £34.
